HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RIVERTON WY
1004 AM MDT TUE MAY 31 2016

...Western and central Wyoming rivers expected to peak early next week in
response to accelerated snowmelt runoff by this weekend...

Snowmelt runoff will continue to increase this week and is expected to greatly
accelerate by this weekend.  Afternoon temperatures at the 9500 foot elevation
are expected to be in the upper 50s to lower 60s Friday through Sunday.  Morning
low temperatures will be at or above the frost temperatures both on Saturday and
Sunday.

Smaller creeks and streams will be running near bankfull conditions by 
Sunday morning with main stem rivers running at moderate to high levels by 
early next week. Minor flooding along small streams and creeks may occur over
low lying areas and near creek and stream confluence locations.

The Little Wind River near Riverton is expected to peak near flood stage by 
Monday afternoon. The Big Wind River at Riverton is forecasted to crest
near flood stage by early Tuesday morning.

Avoid crossing mountain creeks and streams in the late afternoon through early 
evening hours as the water levels are the highest during that time. Keep small 
children away from the banks of high flowing creeks and streams as they can
be quickly washed away.
